The ‘Sucker’ singer calls his ex-girlfriend’s move in revamping the first six albums in her back catalogue in the wake of rights dispute with music mogul Scooter Braun ‘really clever.’
AceShowbiz -Pop star Joe Jonas is eager to follow in ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift‘s footsteps and re-record the Jonas Brothers‘ first album.
Taylor has been busy revamping the first six albums in her back catalogue following a rights dispute with music mogul Scooter Braun, who acquired her masters in his takeover of her former label Big Machine in 2019.
She dropped “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” in April, 13 years after the project’s original release, and added six previously unheard tracks, including “Mr. Perfectly Fine (From the Vault)”, a track reportedly written about her brief romance with Joe back in 2008.
In the new song, the “You Need to Calm Down” hitmaker sings, “Hello Mr. Perfectly Fine/ How’s your heart after breaking mine?/ Mr. always at the right place at the right time, baby/ Hello, Mr. casually cruel/ Mr. everything revolves around you/ I’ve been Miss Misery since your goodbye/ And you’re Mr. Perfectly Fine.”
Joe admits he admires Taylor’s business plan, and he would love to pull off something similar to serve up a modified version of his brotherly group’s 2006 album, “It’s About Time”.
Asked which Jonas Brothers song he would like to remaster, Joe told E! News, “I think I would probably re-record our entire first album. Just do something like what Taylor did recently, which I thought was really clever.”
Braun and his Ithaca Holdings LLC partners no longer own Swift’s early masters, after deciding to sell on the recordings to bosses at an investment fund in November 2020 for over $300 million (£212 million).
